The Miraculous Medal is a testimony to faith and the power of trusting prayer. Its greatest miracles are the of patience, forgiveness, repentance, and faith. Employing NanoFiche® technology, the New Testament telling the story of Christ surrounds the Blessed Mother nano-scribed. In the same background, a holographic cross and bar interlinked with a large bold "M" glitters when placed under single source lighting.
The year of 1830 on the Miraculous Medal is the year the Blessed Mother gave the design of the Miraculous Medal to Saint Catherine Labouré. During her evening meditation on Nov. 27, 1830, Sister Catherine Laboure has a vision of Mary standing in a position similar to the depiction on the medal. Mary speaks to Catherine, saying, "Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around their neck."
On the medal, Mary is standing upon a globe, crushing the head of a serpent beneath her foot. The image of Mary light sculptured to show dynamic changes with varying viewing angles. She has a glowing halo and rays representing grace radiating out from her hands and changes depending on light sources.
The phrase "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for me who have recourse to thee - 1830" surrounds Mary in glittering colors.
On the background is a holographic logo of the cross and bar interlocked with a large M symbolizing the Jesus' cross of Redemption and its connection to Mary the Mother. The cross and the M change colors with viewing angle.
In the background are thousands of micro-lenses to break light up in millions of colors and the outermost ring is another series of micro-lenses to frame the entire medallion.
This is a perfect gift for all those dear to yourself, especially great for weddings, baptisms, and other religious events. The high-grade sterling silver shines gorgeously, complimenting the glittering diffractive elements of the medallion. This is an amazing story for an amazing image, giving the gift of love and light to yourself and others.
